Help America’s Tallest Man Get Some New Shoes

Igor Vovkovinskiy is 7 feet 8.33 inches tall, wears a size 26 shoe and hasn’t had a pair that properly fit since 2006 when this nice German shoemaker Georg Wessels flew to America and hand delivered three pairs. Apparently Reebok wants $16,000 from Igor to get custom molds made, and being America’s Tallest Man doesn’t really pull in any cash… so Igor has turned to us, the American public to help raise funds to get him some comfort for his feet. But seriously, why hasn’t a shoe company stepped up to equip this man with a pair of sneakers? We all know some of those companies have crazy budgets…

Lotto Tips

How to Get a Positive Expected Rate of Return on a Lottery Ticket.

From Scientific American:

“Look for an after-tax, cash value of the jackpot that exceeds 0.8 times the odds against you, and in which the number of tickets sold remains less than one-fifth this jackpot.”

“Pick the most unpopular numbers… By playing unpopular numbers you won’t win any more or less often, but you’ll less often split the pot with other winners.”

“Don’t pick the number one. It’s on about 15 percent of all tickets. Similarly, avoid lucky numbers 7, 13, 23, 32, 42, and 48. Better are 26, 34, 44, 45, and especially overlooked number 46. Avoid any recognizable pattern, but give slight preference to numbers at the edge of the ticket, which are underused. In mathematical terms, picking a unique ticket makes the jackpot look bigger and thus your lottery dollar look smarter.”

Bankrupt Banks

A new exhibition by SUPERFLEX that opens tonight at Peter Blum in Chelsea.

The exhibition features an installation of 24 banners painted with logos of banks that were declared bankrupt and were acquired by other banks, governments or private entities. Originally designed to convey strength, authority and confidence, these now defunct symbols become portraits of failed power structures.
